POETIK ‘For My City’
This week’s local eyes video is POETIK ‘For My City’. Taken from the HAMOFIED EP, ‘For My City’ is produced by SmokeyGotBeatz with the video directed by Jordan Cherrington.
Ventry Parker aka POETIK is an independent kiwi artist born in Hamilton but raised in Apia, Samoa. As a son of a well known Samoan entertainer, music has always played a major roll in his upbringing. Though it wasn’t until his early teens that he discovered his unwavering passion for hip-hop. As one of the founders of the Samoan hip hop scene and a member of the local group Vital Status, Poetik found an outlet from malicious circumstances through music.
